SIGN UP TODAY! 

The women’s shelter at Shearith Israel’s (SI) Rebecca’s Tent has been an important part of Morningside’s Mission Program in years past. Volunteers arrive at the shelter (1180 University Drive, 30306) at 6 p.m. to warm and serve the meal to residents as they arrive from work. Leftovers are prepared for lunches the next day and put in a refrigerator, and the area is cleaned up. We leave by 8 p.m. after visiting with the residents. We have scheduled our volunteer dates for Wednesday - Sunday (January 11 - 15 and February 8 - 12). To sign up please see the signup sheet on the bulletin board.
